DAMMIT. (Also, ba-dum-bum.) I saw the crash yesterday but hadn't heard that it actually took out anybody - much less my man. That's a total bummer.
I'm not a huge fan of the tour, but I'm surprised no one is talking about it here this year. Seems like it always comes up, at least in passing.
I was going to update the Americans on the rest day but didn't get my round tuit. It's been borrrrrrrrrrrrring thus far, but I expect it to pick up soon.
Armstrong is in third at the moment.
I don't WANT to root for Lance. I guess I can root for Christian Vande Velde for now, and hop on the Lance bandwagon later...if I have to...
I just don't know if Alberto Contador is down with Lance getting the yellow jersey. When/if Astana explodes may be the highlight storyline-wise of this Tour. Levi out surely changed that dynamic, though.
I wonder if Tyler Farrar will win a stage? He sure looked good finishing JUST second a few days ago.
That's the rub, isn't it? I don't blame MWR for devising tactics to get two cars into the Chase, and honestly, NASCAR *asked* for this kind of thing when they made the Chase and they made the points system so easy to manipulate.
